Hello I saw your lovely description and images from your travel to Nepal which helped me a lot. I am going to Nepal and wonder how do you manage to get money at an ATM? Are they in english or in nepali? And the paper money seems really difficult to understand the amount it represents? How did you manage? Thank a lot! All the best.
